I wanted to take 11.1 for a spin and see if it was more stable for me than the latest Ubuntu. I’ve got a Macbook Pro that still has a long-unused hfs+ partition (which I’m not trying to do anything with), a root partition, and a /home partition which makes clean upgrades a lot easier. Both Linux partitions are ext4.
I went to install 11.1 and all was well- marked the home partition “Do not format”, to be mounted at /home but got system error -3023 in connection with setting the label on the home partition when I started the install. Fine- I’m just trying it out- I go back and say “Do not format” and “Do not mount”. The label on the partition is ‘Home’ currently and apparently, the installer wanted to clear this label to proceed. I got the same error doing this because now it was trying to clear the label.
Any ideas? If I clear the label before I start, and don’t try to have it mounted, do you think the install will work? Any tips? Will 11.1 be able to read my ext4 home partition? I understood even if it doesn’t work with ext4 it should be able to interact with it as if it were ext3.
